Book Description

This book presents a simple, effective and illuminating way of understanding and working with dreams in clinical practice. It describes the mechanisms through which the mind/brain processes our experience and forms symbols, which embody a rich network of associations. It demonstrates how the dream and this network of associations can apply on a number of levels and thus shows how the full richness and vital importance of dreams, their meanings and purposes, can be explored. The book also explores the history, theory and science of dreams and dreaming. It reviews the debates between, and contributions from, Freud, Jung and other psychoanalysts, as well as the developments and discoveries from neuroscientists and dream laboratories, bringing the subject right up to date. Whilst the book primarily uses Jungian terminology, and highly values Jung's insights and approach to dreams, it gives a critical, contemporary account of the whole field of dream work and will be useful to practitioners of all theoretical persuasions. The book is a valuable resource for the trainee counsellor or therapist who is just beginning to work with dreams, as well as the experienced practitioner who wants to re-evaluate and re-invigorate their practise. It explores the practical and theoretical difficulties and dilemmas, satisfactions and wonders of working dreams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Survey, But Limited In Scope 10 Feb. 2014
By Jeremy Taylor (dreammc@aol.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a professional dream worker & writer about dreams & dream work for many decades, I enjoyed the somewhat narrow survey of schools of thought & professional clinical practices, but many of the more innovative, exploratory, attitudes, theories, and clinical strategies that in my experience are immensely valuable are, alas, missing from the otherwise interesting and reasonable well-written articles and essays.
5.0 out of 5 stars Analyzing dreams 19 Dec. 2014
By Jeanne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fascinating clinical look at dreams. I am very curious about the vivid dreams and wonder if they have significance in my conscious life. While there is no definitive answer to the question, the study of dreams has explored the subject and provided deeply provocative theories for me.
